What Our Customers Say...

Description

Leather Binding, Original Binding, Scarce

An extremely scarce six volume study of the New Testament, from independent Christian minister John Guyse (1680-1761). Guyse was known for the vigour of his attacks on Arianism, a theology whereby Jesus Christ is distinguishable from the Father, and therefore subordinate to him.

Each of these volumes is concerned with distinct portions of the New Testament, with lengthy notes from Guyse, an alphabetical table of information, and a lengthy index to the rear of volume VI.

Here present in its fifth edition, 'The Practical Expositor' was first published in three volumes between 1739 and 1752, before being reprinted as a six volume work. It is scarce in all editions.

ESTC reference no. T94421

Condition

All volumes in a uniform contemporary tree calf binding. The odd mark to the boards, and some rubbing to extremities. Some discolouration to spines, with rubbing resulting in small losses to leather, particularly at head of volume IV, and tail of volume I. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are age toned, with some light spotting.
